At many other graduate schools, the graduate coursework is focused on education or education administration courses without any courses in the basic sciences. Our program uniquely provides both basic biology/chemistry graduate courses that will enhance your ability to understand and teach new material and selected educational pedagogy courses that promote effective teaching.
The MS in Biomedicine teaching program draws upon EMU’s well-known MA in education program for education pedagogy courses.
